Great authentic Mexican restaurant near Chandler Mall. Ample parking next to restaurant. Delicious food and extended menu. Tuesdays are difficult. Nice outside seating. We went at 12:30 noon on a Wednesday. You order inside , go grab a seat outside, and they call your order number. I ordered a Chicken enchilada plate was huge and delicious. My wife ordered a chicken Taco salad. Plenty of fresh chicken in both meals. Highly recommend

Review №3

Amazing flavor! Love fast service, great food. All outdoor seating. Taco Tuesday is amazing! Great price for great tacos on Tuesday!

Review №4

First time I tried this restaurant and at first glance doesn't look all that inviting but once I parked and seen the outside patio set up for dining my thought was how quaint. It's a bit confusing figuring out which door to enter and what line to get into. They need to work on that . They have a wide range of food and it was hard to choose and the prices weren't bad. The girl at the counter wasn't very friendly or patient with me being new to the place I couldnt decide what to get she was rushing me and there wasn't anyone else in line so I quickly ordered a burrito and was deciding on a drink when she had already totaled my order so I just paid for my burrito and decided I would take it home . Food was good and I might try it again hopefully they will have nicer servers.

Espos is right around the corner from my house! They have amazing tacos. The taco Tuesday deals are fantastic! Staff is amazing and very nice!

Review №6

The food was fantastic! The food was a little slow, but with it. My only issue is that folks in the kitchen had their masks down below their noses.

Review №7

Food was very delicious! Portion sizes are more than enough for 2 meals even. And price was very reasonable. Can't wait to try something new next time.

Review №8

Food looked nice, but overall no flavor or seasonings. No service at all and is basically just a fast food restaurant, although not very fast. The patio was nice. We thought to come back and give it another try, but the food was so bland,and lack of service as the cashier played on her phone rather than look up was enough to go to other places. It's not bad, just not worth giving it another shot.

Review №9

Love the casual patio. 10 exceptionally flavorful Macha a beef tacos for $10 with a salsa bar. Tables have socially distant spacing. Love Taco Tuesday here, Thank u Espo's!

Review №10

I had carnitas tacos and husband had carniasada enchiladas with beans and rice. A little too spicy for my taste.

Review №11

Great tacos! Love the 10 for $10 deal on Tueaday. Margaritas are good but not strong. Would definitely recommend overall.

Review №12

Nachos are insanely good. No longer on the menu but you can still ask for them!

Review №13

Best authentic Mexican I've ever had. This place never disappoints or lacks in flavor. I generally get the 3 ground beef taco combo that comes with Spanish rice and a side of beans. The meat is perfectly seasoned with a nice dash of salt lingering on the tongue. I'm not a beans person by any means but I thoroughly enjoy eating the entire container of this each time. Prices are also affordable making this a great weekly pickup.

Review №14

Absolutely delicious. They made my special diet item perfectly and I was very satisfied. Recommended.

Review №15

We come from Avondale to eat the green chile!always satisfied

Review №16

Taco Tuesday was amazing! Salsa, guac, and tacos! The 3 taco special w/drink was just the right amount. I couldn't make up my kind on what types I wanted so I asked the cashier to pick her top 3 and they were all delicious! Will return next time I'm in town!

Review №17

I've been going there since the mid-seventies and although things change the qualities always been excellent

Review №18

Great authentic Mexican food. I would have given them 5 stars if they had more dessert options. The two desserts they offer (wheat flour churros and cinnamon chips) both contain gluten. I wish they had flan.

Review №19

Yes yes and yes to Taco Tuesday!! I ordered both hard and soft shell tacos and I was so happy with what I received. The machaca, carne asada, carnitas and chicken were all equally great. It was all set up for social distancing and worth every penny. Please swing by and give them a try. You can dine there at there outdoor patio or get it to go.

Review №20

What a great place for Mexican food. Came here on Tuesday for lunch. Having many lunch special like tacos, quesadillas, burritos , nacho and the best is the Margaritas for $2 per cup! Indoor and outdoor sitting. Casual dining and you need to make your order and get your own food.. lovely place and tasty food too...

What a great place for Mexican food. Came here on Tuesday for lunch. Having many lunch special like tacos, quesadillas, burritos , nacho and the best is the Margaritas for $2 per cup! Indoor and outdoor sitting. Casual dining and you need to make your order and get your own food.. lovely place and tasty food too. This is a place for fairly realistic Mexican Food. Basic food with old world taste. Menu has good choices. The wait was short and service fast, but not fast food taste!

Review №22

Wow! This place is fantastic!Their outdoor seating is nice too.

Review №23

Great food. Beware they change hours of operation frequently.

Review №24

Awesome taco Tuesday! Great taco 10 for 10 and the salsa bar is a very nice touch with plenty of sauces ro choose from.

Review №25

I've been going there for over 30 years and they still have an authentic, reasonably priced, delicious menu!

Review №26

Best mexican in east valley! machaha is very good! red sauce on the burritos is a must!

Review №27

Not terrible. Just nothing special about anything. Price was ok

Review №28

So much food and very tasty!

Review №29

Good food and great company. They never disappoint. Plus we bought a bunch of girls out cookies out front. Help support our young ladies

Review №30

My favorite Mexican place in Candler. Maybe if all of Arizona. Enchiladas, Burritos. It doesn't matter you can't go wrong. A hidden gem. When I service pools in this area once a week I almost always stop in

Review №31

The carne asada is some of the best around. The green Chile beef is good. I like their green chile salsa too.

Review №32

They have authentic Mexican food, in a totally family run business. They have been there more than 50 years.

Review №33

This place is great!! Too many good things to say. The tacos were delicious!

Review №34

Excellent mexican foid

Review №35

I liked the setting. I'll try it again bypassing the ten tacos Tuesday special. I wasn't impressed with the taste of the 'giveaways' tacos. I've heard the good is good so I'll give it another try on a non Tuesday.

Review №36

Tastes exactly as I remember when I was in high school. Love when they have that the DJ

Review №37

I haven't had good real Mexican food from back in the day. The food was absolutely delicious. The red chili is fire and the beans were out of this world. I am bringing my family to try it I know they will love it. Oh yes margaritas a must .

Review №38

Awesome food!!! The ground beef taco was my favorite. The red beef tamales rocked my world!! The tamale was spicy, but full of flavour. Definitely going again, and bringing the whole family. If you love Mexican food you have to come here!!

Review №39

Had the red chili burrito and it was amazing. The food was so good I forgot to take a picture of the burrito. Trust me their food is amazing. I started eating and couldn't put it down.

Review №40

Consistently good Mexican food. Love this place!

Review №41

Great prices, good food, they have a small patio

Review №42

Great food! Sensible prices and variety of authentic mexican food! Staff is friendly and helpful with suggestions for trying dishes and drinks! A solid crowd of regulars during lunch so get there before 12 pm to beat the crowd. Great lunch or dinner dishes.

Review №43

I had to pick up an order at the Chandler Best Buy today. The wife and I then looking for somewhere to eat. Preferably, some place we never eaten before. That's when we spotted a little hole in the wall Espos Mexican Food. It said Authentic so we were eager to try. To say the least, the food was just that, Authentic. As my wife put it, being that she was born and raised in Arizona, she said the food taste like homemade. The food was excellent and we will definitely eat here again.

Review №44

I've said it for years and still believe it, Espo's is the best Taco Tuesday in the east valley.Street tacos are fantastic and just $1 on Tuesdays. They also have specials on margaritas and some beers. It gets PACKED, but if you want to sit you can usually find a spot after just a few minutes. You go up, order, grab salsas, and either find a seat or step aside to wait. They're quick!The patio is super cute and bigger than you might expect. They often have a DJ on busier nights, and a bar out back also. In rhe last year or so, they re-did the parking lot and also went straw- and lid-less, so they are making improvements.

Review №45

A must if you love Mexican food! They have one of the BEST red sauces I've ever had at a restaurant!

Review №46

I have lived here for over 30 years. I finally tried Espo's; i am glad i did. Fresh tortillas like Carolina's. Homemade salsa. If you are looking for good Mexican food, try this place. It is in between a sit down restaurant and fast food. Try this place. Get the el jefe!

Review №47

Delicious burritos, can't go wrong with any item menu. Wash it all down with a nice cold beer, or perfectly seasoned horchata.

Review №48

I've been going here for over 17 years and I still enjoy it! The carne asada chimichanga is still my favorite. Nice to have the option of having it by itself or as a meal with rice and beans. Very affordable for the amount of food you get!

Review №49

Delicious quesadillas and tacos and everything else

Review №50

Counter order Mexican restaurant with $5 taco Tuesday special (3 tacos and a drink). Good carne asada street tacos and huge burritos. Has a small condiment buffet. Outdoor seating and small interior seating. Pretty fast service.

Review №51

Great place to get Mexican food now that they serve alcohol you can sit on the patio and enjoy your food with the beer

Review №52

Our absolute favorite Mexican food restaurant!!

Review №53

Best Mexican food I've had in a while

Review №54

This place is delicious. It has been a family favorite for 20 years now

Review №55

My oh my lady in red! This chandler GEM is a local favorite and has been since they used to have the mini shopping store open right next to the restaurant. The food is exceptional, service is outstanding, the atmosphere is authentic and the many many different menu items to choose from are all truly authentic Mexican made with the love of decades of their families recepie that never fails me. I recommend trying the green chili burrito and don't forget to get you're "barqs red cream soda" while here as it's hard to find oh my I'm in love with the lady in red!!

Review №56

My 4-star is like others 5 star. To be 5 star you need to knock my socks off. This place is a hidden gem in Chandler. The tacos are very good. The burrito is excellent. Try the Carne Asada but here is the trick ask for a little extra pico on it. They make it a little weak and that extra moisture brings it up a level. I'm a burrito guy but the best thing they have here is the chicken enchilada. Just a little kick. Enjoy.

Review №57

The chicken chimichanga was our favorite dish, but we wish you had flan. Thank you for the yummy food.

Review №58

It doesnt look like much from the outside, even less from the inside. But the food there is outstanding! Take a calculated risk and explore this wonderful Mexican eatery!

Review №59

First time ever to visit and grab a bite to eat at Espo's and needless to say I have just found my new favorite burrito spot. I grabbed a el hefe burrito and a horchata and there is no arguing that this place is good.

Review №60

Food is good, love the green chili

Review №61

Great mexican food with nice atmosphere. This is a counter service restaurant. With indoor and outdoor seating. I ordered the carne asada chimichangas. It was topped with lettuce, cheese, olives and tomatoes. The meat wad chopped up into small bite size pieces, very tender and great flavor. The chimichangas was fried to a perfect golden brown. I topped it with the green salsa which is a little spicy but good. The burrito is big enough for two. You will be very pleased if you stop here top eat. Please if you liked my review, like it. Went back again, ordered the enchaladas, chicken and carne asada. Both were very good.

Review №62

Burnt Chimichanga and Breakfast burrito. Burnt meat and bacon. Couldn't call them because they don't pick up their phone.

Review №63

Authentic Mexican food for a decent price.

Review №64

Good was very good, chips and salsa were great, cost was reasonable and I will be going back. I had a breakfast burrito and it was big and flavorful. Others had an enchiladas plate and red beef plate, both were generous in portion and tasted great. I recommend this for an informal place to eat good and real Mexican food.

Review №65

Great food, best Street tacos on Tuesdays

Review №66

I have been driving past this place for a year. I have always wanted to try it. No doubt it was worth it. The food is made to order. We waited for about a few minutes for them to prepare it. It was worth the wait. The rice was so full of flavor and fluffy. The machaca was so juicy and had a robust flavor not over powering. Everything was so fresh and hot. I recommend this place.

Review №67

Espo's Great food! Awesome people! Definitely a new favorite place for me!

Review №68

Chips and salsa were not that great. The tacos were in those pre-made shells you get at the grocery store. I was very disappointed.

Review №69

One of the best Mexican restaurants I've been to in Arizona...Great sized burros. EL JEFE was amazing.

Review №70

Taco Tuesday is the best value.

Review №71

Always amazing. 30+ years and I still can't tire of this place. Thanks Espinozas!

Review №72

Espo's food is always GREAT and service is just as great!!!

Review №73

Closes at 8 not the greatest tacos shells store bought

Review №74

Very good and authentic. Went on taco Tuesday and was and I was not disappointed. Great staff clean restaurant and bathrooms. Food was full of flavor, everything was freshly made.

Review №75

I had the carnitas and it was very good. Very tender and moist with no fatty pieces. The dining area is way too small and crowded though

Review №76

I consider myself a real Mexican food expert. Been in Tempe / Phoenix are for 19 years just found this place a week ago the BEST FOOD EVER!!! I have eaten there 5 times already I am going to try everything on the own special crack

Review №77

For Espo's Mexican Food I give it four stars for food, interesting customer service and good times. I found Espos after driving by seeing a large crowd esp for Taco Tuesday's! With your order maybe get a Bucket of chips, their awesome with a generous order of guacamole. I also like the fruit flavors drinks such as Cantaloupe or strawberry.Right around the corner from Chandler mall you can stop by and try out the Espos. This a gem for the area flooded with corporate restaurants. Espos offer a community location for people to hang and enjoy a good time.

Review №78

Excellent food good salsas,good service

Review №79

Great deals for taco Tuesday. Very crowded but food was good and atmosphere was festive. Great margaritas!! Service was a little slow because of the crowd. All in all will definitely return.

Review №80

Recommend. Gave it a try & it was delish!

Review №81

This is pretty authentic. I love the salsa and chips. Salsa had a nice kick to it and rich with homemade flavor. I ordered two soft shell corn tortilla tacos, one asada and one carnita. They are decent sized and I thought I would finish one and take some of the other one home...oh my! Asada was greatness but carnita was even better. The pork was tender and succulent. I ordered a side of guacamole which was good but I prefer other style with more onion and cilantro. One side of guacamole was ample for my two tacos. Inside was busy so I ate on the patio in 106 heat! Not too bad as it was a “dry” heat and they had mister's. This place is greatness, and I have experienced some authentic Mexican food as I live in Texas!

Review №82

Best tacos ever. Brought dinner up a mountain... awesome!!!

Review №83

Amazing flavor. My first visit here, definitely will be back. The kind of place that you can't wait to come try another dish.

Review №84

Been years since I've been back here but worth it, has a spicy kick to it that's addictive.

Review №85

Best Mexican food around!!! Although the place is small and always busy at meal time, you still get your food quickly. I highly recommend Espos! Everything I've tried is delicious!

Review №86

Amazing little place great food

Review №87

The carnitas were delicious! Chicken is good too! I would say it just needs so cilantro and onions. The carne asada was okay. Rice and beans were bland. But definitely the carnitas are delish! The Mango pineapple water is so good and refreshing too.

Review №88

Huge menu, everything is fantastic!

Review №89

We are visiting from out of town and decided to eat here. It was an extremely poor experience and really unexpected based on the reviews. Here's why:- The veggies in the tacos were just chopped tomatoes and shredded lettuce. Cheap ingredients that reminded me of a fast food place. No onions, no pico- Chicken was not seasoned at all. Seriously seemed boiled and that's it- The tortillas were very weak and broke easily- Our order of 6 tacos took nearly 30 minutes to make- Where was the salsa bar? The reviews we read mentioned a salsa bar, but that was no where to be foundI hope it was an off day, but if it wasn't then I encourage you to go somewhere else

Review №90

Delicious. I had the chicken burrito and the ground beef crispy taco. The burrito was so filled with white meat chicken that I couldn't finish it. I'd love to go back for Taco Tuesday

Review №91

Order the green Chile beef and then hold onto your hat. The levels of flavor in their recipe might just blow you away. It brings me back through the door time after time. Love it!!

Review №92

I have yet to discover a thing I hate on their menu. They never skimp on the fillings, everything comes to me hot and their agua frescas is always cool and on point. The inside is clean, the staff is friendly and even though the patio overlooks Chandler Blvd, it is a great place to sit and enjoy the mild weather. If you are in the area, don't pass it up. Trust me, you'll thank me later.

Review №93

This place is over the top amazing! I had the green Chile burrito and it was really savory and delicious! My husband had some hard shell tacos and he loved the way the meat was seasoned!

Review №94

Tacos Tuesday 10 for $10 was delicous. There's no AC so be prepared to sweat but it's worth it for the delicious food, cold drinks at the outdoor bar, and they even had a DJ slinging tunes. I can hardly wait to go again.P.S. You can also buy individual tacos for $1.50 or 3 for $5 if you have that kind of self control.

Review №95

The food is amazing and the employees are always nice.

Review №96

Our family loves this place! Authentic and delicious food, a casual, genuine, non-commercial atmosphere with natural character and nice service. You order and pick up your food from the counter, and find your seat early! Know that they are always busy for good reason-wonderful menu, great food, good portions and fair prices! A super place to take visitors who would like a taste and of some real Mexican home-style cooking.

Review №97

This place is delicious and they have great deals on tacos on Tuesday. Highly recommend on coming here for a good deal and vibes.

Review №98

Family favorite of Chandler/Tempe. Rustic charm, best beans, friendly employees! Pictured is a shredded beef taco, wrapped bean burro, and cheese crisp.

Review №99

Went for lunch with bf for their Taco Tuesday special: $2 margaritas and $1.50Tacos, or 10 for $10. They give you the tortilla shell filled with your meat choice (my favorite is carnitas) and then they have a toppings bar with multiple red and green salsas, shredded lettuce, chopped onions/cilantro mix, lime wedges — there may have been some additional toppings that I'm not recalling. Overall very good for the price. The place had a steady stream of people coming in during the hour I was there for lunch. They have a large outdoor patio as well as a few tables for inside seating.

Average Mexican food atmosphere.Outdoor seating was plentiful.I ordered a plate to go.Good pulled pork.Refried beans.Good rice.
